Animal lovers anger over horses seized near Ulverston

ANGRY animal lovers have hit out after an ill-treated horse seized from fields near Ulverston was put down.

SUFFERING The yearling before it was taken from Long Lane by the RSPCA last week

Two horses in a stable in Long Lane, Leece, were rescued by the RSPCA on Friday after Barrow horse lovers raised concerns for the animals’ welfare.

The yearling collapsed on Friday and vets were forced to put the animal to sleep over the weekend after its condition worsened.

Both horses were owned by the same pair whose pony was found three days after it had died by a local farmer, last Monday.

Now, Evening Mail readers have voiced their anger at the abuse.

Helen Kellett said: “If it hadn't been for the persistance of the vet and the horse community in attendance on Friday that the horses in question may still be suffering.

“I hope that a full investigation does take place to prevent this from happening again and can only feel sad that the action eventually taken was too late for both Mario and the foal.

“I truly hope that Milly comes through her ordeal and is able to be rehomed and treated with the level of care she deserves.”

Jean Storey was left angry at the shocking news.

She added: “Just read this how appalling is this, the people responsible for these animals should never be able to own any animal again, the words I have to say about them are unprintable, hope they get what they deserve.”

Hannah Torkington said: “Disgusting and cruel.

“Heartbroken after seeing the state those two horses were in with my own eyes.

“Some people don't deserve animals. How anybody could treat an animal in such a cruel way is beyond me.

“Hope karma kicks their back sides.”

Have your say

This whole situation is disgusting those poor animals deserved better than this. The people responsible for this need to pay for what they've done and be made to suffer just like those poor ponies. People should need some kind of certificate for keeping animals to say they've took an exam and understand the full responsibility of keeping them

Unfortunately, the people who inflict this type of suffering on animals never do get what they truly deserve.
